The first fortnight of DC Universe Online

, | Games

Part two of my DC Universe Online field report for Gamepro covers customization, character builds, game balance, and the age-old question of whether to PvP or not to PvP. On this last subject, I’ve had a powerful change of heart since I started playing the game.

DC Universe is only putatively an MMO. More accurately, it is a multiplayer open-world action game in which villains and heroes fight it out in a besieged city.

In other words, you’re not playing DC Universe Online unless you’re playing PvP.

By the way, that picture up there is me taking a flamethrower to Nightwing, who tricked me into playing as Robin.
